This letter is from a wife to her husband and initially the wife talks about missing her husband and the struggles of having someone write the letter for her because she feels that she cannot fully express herself while others are listening. She also includes a number of very brief anecdotes about family members and the general happenings at home. At the end of the letter there is an additional note from the mother of the husband to him expressing her desire to have him home and telling him about Beth, who is very ill.
